Coroner’s inquest resumes in death of First Nations youth
Proceedings for the coroner’s inquest into the deaths of 7 First Nations students who died while in Thunder Bay resumed Monday.
The inquest experienced a delay last week while lawyers for the coroner and other parties need to discuss legal matters pertaining to the proceedings.
Over 52 days of evidence has been heard so far.
This Monday marked the start of the third phase of the inquest.
Proceedings are expected to conclude March 31st.
All seven youth travelled to Thunder Bay from isolated First Nations communities so they could attend school. The youth died between 2000-2011.
